Mark 4:22 Answered Prayer for Our Military

Wednesday, April 16, 2003

Beloved, Those who live in Psalm 91 and who pray expecting a "NOW" answer from God in these "Glory Days Of God" will be blessed by this article below. It will help you to see why Mark 4:22 is a prayer that blesses me so much.
This article will also help you to see when you pray for rain and wind to stop and it does not, that it could be God in it all - for such a time as this.

Love and Blessings,

Joan Ann

Jeremiah 51:1

Thus saith Jehovah: Behold, I will raise up against Babylon, and against them that dwell in the heart of those that rise against me, a destroying wind;

I am sure that all of you heard about the sandstorm in Iraq last Tuesday and Wednesday (the worst in 100 years some say) and the drenching rain that followed the next day.

Our troops were bogged down and couldn't move effectively. The media was already wondering if the troops were in a "quagmire" and dire predictions of gloom and doom came from the left wing media.

What they didn't report, after the weather had cleared, the Marine group that was mired the worst looked out at the plain they were just about to cross. What did they see? Hundreds if not thousands of anti-tank and antipersonnel mines had been uncovered by the wind and then washed off by the rain. If they had proceeded as planned, many lives would have undoubtedly been lost. As it was, they simply drove around them and let the demolition teams destroy them.

One person once asked George Washington if he thought God was on his side. His reply is reported to be, "It is not that God should be on our side, but that we be on His."
